Tim Coonan, a 15-year home roaster, marries the efficiency of second-wave coffee (e.g., Starbucks) with the clean design and small-scale ethos of the third wave (e.g., Intelligentsia) at this corner coffee bar. He caters to Blue Line commuters with $2 “fast coffee” (available in a self-serve drip machine) and to laptop lingerers with “slow coffee” (pour-over) and espresso drinks (plus a spartan few pastries from Cheap Tart Bakery). Fast or slow, every cup in the sunny, minimalist setting is made from beans Coonan roasts on site.
